Fabulous Italian restaurant. I had the grilled lamb chops with spinach and potatoes-absolutely divine. Who knew you could have great Italian food in Laguna Beach?

And they were just as good as or maybe better, than Friday night. We sat where our friends favorite server, Jamie, could be with us. Ordered drinks which were served in a timely manner. Then the serious discussions began, what have we had before, what did we want tonight, what did we really love and what would we ultimately order. Before 6PM the bar menu or Happy Hour Menu is offered, we choose items off of both the regular dinner and bar menus. White and Red wines, by the glass, a couple of different salads, a Ceaser and a wonderful antipasti, Carpaccio di Manzo. I had the Spaghetti Puttanesca, others ordered eggplant. All the plates, except mine, went off the table clean, nothing left on them. Parking in the lot next door to the restaurant was $10.00, but we were able to walk down the the Laguna Playhouse to catch their production of the The Graduate. A little like the movie, gave a better description as to why Elaine ran away with Ben, than the movie. It starred Melanie Griffith as Mrs. Robinson, still going strong and looking great.

We had an early dinner here last night. Four of us had immediate seating. The bread and olive tapenade were tasty. The bruschetta appetizer was flavorful. Our server seemed to be in a hurry and so we all got drinks at different times. The men ordered the tagliatelle and neither of them enjoyed it. Not flavorful and the meatballs were undercooked and cold. The gnocchi was the best dish by far. I had the margarita pizza and it was soggy and cold in the middle. No flavor and very few ingredients. We all left with more than half of our food on our plates. It is a very nice place with great atmosphere so hopefully this was an off day for them. I doubt we will return.

Came here on a quite Tuesday Night. Wait staff seated us promptly and provided warm bread with olive tapenade. Bread was nice and crusty and may have come from in-house wood fired oven. My wife has special swordfish and I had Osso Bucco (again) as it's my favorite dish. The swordfish was cooked perfectly with a light reduction of dry white wine, fresh lemon & capers sauce. My Osso Buco was very tender and the bonus was the bone marrow spread on the crusty bread.

Happy to revisit this popular authentic Italian restaurant in our favorite local town of Laguna Beach CA. The menu offers so many great choices from pizza to Osso Buco in addition to some great specials of the day. Antonio is a gracious host and Luis follows close behind bringing the menus and making us feel right at home. The decor reflects the beautiful artistic community of Laguna and is obviously a local favorite. It's a great place for couples, friends or families.
